What Causes Burn Injury Accidents?

Burn injury accidents occur every day across Arizona, including the small city of Florence. While not all accidents result in serious injuries, the toll of a burn injury is often unpredictable and such accidents almost always happen without warning. Burn injury accidents can occur in a multitude of different situations. According to the Arizona Burn Foundation, accidents involving burns can happen in many scenarios, including:

  • Improperly maintained or broken fire alarms that do not work in a fire;
  • Car accidents that cause one or more vehicles to catch on fire;
  • Food or drinks that are served too hot;
  • Improperly maintained water heaters and boilers that allow water to achieve higher than 120-degrees Fahrenheit; and
  • Steam from broken pipes, etc. in stores.
